## Dimensions and conversion of units

The height of mercury column in a barometer in a Calcutta laboratory was recorded to be 75 cm. Calculate this pressure in SI and CGS units using the following data : specific gravity is 13.6, density of water is 1000 kg/m3, g is 9.8 m/s2 at Calcutta. Pressure = hρg in usual symbols Your email:

## A Numerical Problem from Projectile Motion

A short is fired from a gun on the top of a hill 90m high with velocity 80m/s at an angle of 30 degree with the horizontal. Find the horizontal distance between the vertical line through the gun and the ponit where the shot strikes the ground? (Shilpa asked this question) Answer: Take Sy= -90m…… Continue reading A Numerical Problem from Projectile Motion

## Physics Songs

One student requested that he was given an assignment on composing a song based on the laws and principles of Physics. So, I am posting some links here to various sites which posted Songs based on Principles of Physics.
